Millionaire Steven Mnuchin Brings $20 Wine Bottle to Jared Kushner's House

Updated | Steven Mnuchin may be treasury secretary and have a net worth of about $300 million, but he still keeps his personal purse strings tight.

President Donald Trump's finance chief was spotted bringing a $20 bottle of wine to Trump's son-in-law and senior White House adviser, Jared Kushner, during a visit to his Washington, D.C., home on Sunday, the Daily Mail reported.

In photos, Mnuchin clutched the bottle of 2015 Arbalest Red Bordeaux Blend with a man-and-crossbow label and handed it to a smiling Kushner.

The blend of merlot with 14 percent cabernet sauvignon and 4 percent petit verdot sells for $19.95 on the Woodland Hills Wine Co. website.

"Full-bodied, ripe and rounded, with a sexy, opulent style, lots of mid-palate depth, and a great finish, it's well worth your time and money and is a smoking deal at 20 bucks," according to a review by American wine critic Jeb Dunnuck on the site.

While Mnuchin gifts affordable wine, he has had no problem spending taxpayer money. The treasury secretary's flights on military aircraft added up to nearly $1 million as of March, including a weeklong trip to the Middle East that cost $183,646, according to documents obtained by the watchdog group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

Though its price is low, the wine that Mnuchin picked has received some high marks for value. Experts say the 2015 blend is the best vintage in Bordeaux since 2009, according to The Mercury News. It was created by winemaker Benoit Touquette, who has consulted for many wineries in Napa Valley, California, but it comes at a reasonable price because it was produced in France.

It is unclear why the dressed-down Mnuchin, holding an iPad in his other hand, was meeting with Kushner.

Kushner's troubles in the White House worsened over the past week. Trump's new legal team member Rudy Giuliani embarrassed Kushner on national television last Wednesday. Giuliani said Kushner is dispensable in light of special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe, while his wife and fellow senior White House adviser, Ivanka Trump, is not.

"Jared is a fine man, you know that. But men are, you know, disposable," Giuliani said with a laugh on Fox News. "A fine woman like Ivanka, come on."
